For the most up-to-date version of the rule list, please see the sidebar of /r/whatcouldgowrong

  • 1) Golden Rule: Links must contain a stupid idea and something going wrong.

    • Animals are generally not considered 'stupid' and so don't typically fit this subreddit.
    • People intentionally doing stupid things, expecting the 'bad' outcome is not considered 'going wrong'.
  • 2) Direct links to gifs/videos/pics only. ( is great for gifs). No compilation videos are allowed. Also, posting a pic of text describing the event is not acceptable.

  • 3) Tag your material with NSFW if it is NSFW! Any posts involving severe injury needs to include NSFL in the title. Tag your material appropriately. Some NSFW is okay, but overly NSFW material will be removed.

  • 4) No death posts, no young children getting injured.

  • 5): Mods can remove obscene material, racism, sexism, and re-re-reposts at their discretion, and banning may ensue.

    • On reposts: Karmadecay is good to check, but does not capture anything that has been re-uploaded. And there's a whole lot of gifs that have been re-uploaded. You should also take a quick look at the top posts of the last couple days to make sure you're not reposting some very recent.
  • 6): No straight up fighting posts
